Tomorrowworld is an iconic festival, branched off from the world’s largest dance music event, Tomorrowland. Most of the festival is filled with the largest names of EDM, with eight uniquely decorated stages. However, if you don’t care for the typical mainstream style electronic music, here’s a Booty Shaker guide to Tomorrowworld:
This is an essential that goes for all three days of the festival: AVOID THE MAINSTAGE AT ALL COSTS! Maybe go check it out for 30 seconds to see the epic stage production, but don’t get trapped in one of the worst crowds offered at any festival in the entire world.
Honestly, I personally would stay at the Drumcode stage all day. The sound of minimal techno doesn’t get old to me. And with both Ida Engberg and Adam Beyer playing in the same day, it’s certainly a family affair.
Another stage to check out would be the Huh What & Where stage. This stage, headlined by Kaytranada’s brother, Louie P, is a must hit at some point throughout the day. This LA based label kills R&Bs crossover into the electronic world, and is a true spectacle to catch.
Again, try to avoid the EDM stages. I hate American PLUR bro kandi slut ravers. They’re the worst. No, I don’t want you shoving your bead covered arms with flashing lights on your fingers in my face without you asking (and if you ask, I still don’t).
Things to catch for day 2 are the popping All Gone Pete Tong stage. Really can’t go wrong over there, catching a bunch of the Dirtybird crew including Justin Martin, Justin Jay, and the legendary Claude Vonstroke for a very special b2b set with Green Velvet called Get Real. Booty Shakers caught that set at Outside Lands and it’s an absolute must see!
Another really hot set to check out is on the ATL stage. Sonny Digital, DJ Spinz, and Metro Boomin are doing a b2b!!!! That shit is about to pop off, an hour of Atlanta’s finest hip hop bangers coming from some of Atlanta’s best hip hop producers.
This has to be the best day of the festival featuring three most see stages. Priority should be the Paradise stage. Jamie Jones kills it, end of story. On that stage he’s placed his best Hot Creations hitters playing all day. Denney, into Patrick Topping, into Matador, into Guy Gerber, into Maya Jane Coles, and Jamie with the closing set. If you told me that this was the entire festival, I’d be there in a heartbeat. Straight fire!!
Another stage to check out is the Mythical Frames stage. The crowd might not be the best, but seeing sets from Rezz, Claptone, Destructo, and even Gramatik are definitely some popping off things happening at the festival. However, I wouldn’t leave the Paradise stage for any of those acts…
Lastly, the Australian collective Future Classic is hosting a stage with some hot hitters. KiNK and Wave Raver are some great acts to catch on that stage. But I will say there are some strange genres bouncing around on that stage.
The festival hosts some awesome acts throughout the weekend, guaranteed fun for all types of electronic music lovers! Catch you there!
